In the excitement surrounding the launch of a new company, many entrepreneurs overlook the dimension of human dynamics between the founders. For example, one of the hardest thing for founders to talk about is the division and assignment of authority. Yet it's also one of the most important. And strong, competent leadership by those who hold authority is necessary if the company is to grow and prosper. Our speaker will be Dr. Peter Newton, of Peter Newton and Associates, who, through a series of case vignettes, will highlight fundamental leadership principles as they apply specifically to new enterprises.
In this session you will learn:
- basic leadership principles from the perspective of a seasoned organizational psychologist
- insights into human dynamics in startups
- recommendations based on past and current company real-world leadership challenges
Who should attend:
CEOs, Senior executives, co-founders, venture capitalists, or any entrepreneur interested in a deeper understanding of human dynamics in young enterprises.
